Earlier in the day, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath hit out at the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government over the spread of the disease in the central Indian state. Nath alleged during a video conference call with journalists that for every 10 lakh people in the state, only 25 to 30 persons were being tested, that too mostly in the urban areas.

“What is a matter of concern is that the figures are for urban areas and not for rural areas. People have come back from adjoining states and gone to their villages. We have no idea if they have brought any infection with them and how many people they might have further infected,” he said.
